STEM musician is praised in review


Matthew Goree

STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Academy Junior, Matthew Goree, performed on Oct. 21, in the Olmos Ensemble playing his oboe. This was Matthew's first appearance playing alongside his troupe's director, Mark Ackerman.

Matthew was reviewed by San Antonio Express-News writer Mike Greenberg as playing, "...splendidly, with a rich, round tone that nearly identical to Ackerman's, and a bit more digital agility than his teacher."

Matthew is a percussion section leader in the Robert E. Lee High School band's front ensemble. This past spring, Matthew was a finalist in the San Antonio Symphony's Future Stars competition. STEM is very proud of Matthew!
